About the Iowa RV Campground Owners Association

The Iowa RV Campground Owners Association is a non-profit association of privately and corporate owned campgrounds. We market our parks through this website and the National ARVC Go Camping America website. We distribute brochures at state highway rest areas, all member parks, and trade shows – as well as mailing them out in response to consumer inquiries. Our goal is to provide the camping public with the highest quality camping experience.

As an association, we meet twice a year (in October and March) to review industry trends, discuss problems that members may have encountered and solutions that we have taken. There are always featured topics, and we invite industry leaders to share their knowledge on topics that in the past have included wi-fi, website development, playground equipment, landscaping, customer service, online reservations, marketing, and exit strategies.

We are committed to promoting excellence in the industry both at our local campgrounds and on a national front. Locally, we serve our peers in an advisory capacity. Nationally, we offer a $500 scholarship to ARVC Foundation’s National School of RV Park and Campground Management, and we encourage attendance at the National ARVC Convention in November.
